The College of Arts & Sciences office of Corporate & Foundation Relations works to advance relationships with foundations, corporations and other organizations to bring support for innovative and impactful projects across the College. CFR is available to assist you through the process of identifying potential funding partners, developing a proposal, and stewarding funders once support has been received.

Preparation

  • Convene cross-campus conversations around themes of interest to corporations and foundations to increase opportunities for funding
  • Strategize for corporations and foundations that prioritize strategic investments with the intention of generating specific and measurable outcomes
  • Confirm whether limited submission funding opportunity policy applies to a foundation or corporation
  • Schedule time with us to discuss strategy.

Solicitation

Stewardship

Work with corporations and foundations to ensure their goals are met

  • Advise on strategies to recognize and inform foundation and corporate donors (such as stewardship visits and correspondence)
